"I would like to say 'This book is written to the glory of God', but nowadays this would be the trick of a cheat, i.e., it would not be correctly understood."--Ludwig Wittgenstein
"Talk to me about the truth of religion, and I'll listen gladly. Talk to me about the duty of religion and I'll listen submissively. But don't come talking to me about the consolation of religion or I shall suspect that you don't understand."--C.S. Lewis

What Joni Ernst meant to say last night
It was her "Republican cloth coat" speech.
You know you were thinking it. If you're of a certain age.....*

She hears enough of that crap from me, and I've got 30 years or so on Ernst.
Just so long as the gummint doesn't mandate that my kids wear bread bags on the way to school, I'm happy...ReplyDelete
